Bill Presented: New Clause. — (Commencement.) (2 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: I must not keep the House too long, but I feel most strongly about this, probably more strongly than I can adequately express. I believe that I am expressing the fundamental views of all hon. Members. I heard someone say that this matter can be settled in the Division Lobby. That is not the answer. This is more important than any question of numbers and of Divisions. It goes right to the...

Bill Presented: New Clause. — (Commencement.) (2 Mar 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sorry, but I am coming to the end of my speech and I am sure the House will be glad of that. What I am trying to say as an ordinary every-day person is that we do not like the State using the whole power of the House to countermand something which the court has said it should do and which it does not want to do. This is the whole nub of the matter. I wish that we had never been called...

Bill Presented: Sunday Observance (15 Feb 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: I agree with the argument which my hon. and learned Friend has deployed, but I am sure that he has not overlooked the fact that a number of very large matches take place in this country on Saturdays, and under the recommendations of the Crathorne Report they could take place on Sundays because the participants are all amateurs.

Orders of the Day — Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill (21 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: rose——

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 4. — (Goods Exempted from Duty.) (7 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: My hon. Friend the Member for Shipley (Mr. Hirst) said that practically all of us on this side of the House felt strongly about some of the workings of the import levy. I should like to add that a great many industrialists also feel very strongly about the way in which the levy is working out. I must say in all courtesy that an example I have under Amendment No. 4 has only come to my notice...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 4. — (Goods Exempted from Duty.) (7 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Gentleman, but I must point out that I did not say anything about the 15 per cent. surcharge. I spoke about the justice of the date.

Orders of the Day — NATIONAL INSURANCE &c. BILL: Clause 1. — (AMENDMENTS AS TO CONTRIBUTIONS AND BENEFITS UNDER INSURANCE ACT. 1963 c. 7. 1959 c. 47.) (3 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I want to tell the hon. Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Hamling), so that he can identify me, that my constituency is South Bedfordshire. If he cares to look up the record to which he has referred—I think that we are talking about the same occasion—he will find that I—whether it is a criticism or the opposite I am not prepared to say—do not fit personally into the category he has just...

Orders of the Day — NATIONAL INSURANCE &c. BILL: Clause 1. — (AMENDMENTS AS TO CONTRIBUTIONS AND BENEFITS UNDER INSURANCE ACT. 1963 c. 7. 1959 c. 47.) (3 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I hope that that comment does not reflect the views of the party opposite. The simple answer is that it should be held in public for the reason that many of the provisions in the 1946 Act are out of date. Information may be in the hands of the Ministry, but that does not necessarily mean that all of it is up to date. Only if the review is held in public, with all possible evidence brought...

Orders of the Day — NATIONAL INSURANCE &c. BILL: Clause 1. — (AMENDMENTS AS TO CONTRIBUTIONS AND BENEFITS UNDER INSURANCE ACT. 1963 c. 7. 1959 c. 47.) (3 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am most interested in what my hon. Friend is saying and she knows that I support her on this, as I have indicated previously, but would she say that the state of widowhood by itself should be a qualification?

Orders of the Day — NATIONAL INSURANCE &c. BILL: Clause 1. — (AMENDMENTS AS TO CONTRIBUTIONS AND BENEFITS UNDER INSURANCE ACT. 1963 c. 7. 1959 c. 47.) (3 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The Amendment is needed to fill a gap which, with the best will in the world, has been created by the Act. The review will have to decide whether we still adhere to the principle laid down by the Beveridge Committee on the subject of qualification for benefit by widowhood per se without there being any insurance background. My hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge (Mr. Curran) gave the views on...

Orders of the Day — NATIONAL INSURANCE &c. BILL: Clause 1. — (AMENDMENTS AS TO CONTRIBUTIONS AND BENEFITS UNDER INSURANCE ACT. 1963 c. 7. 1959 c. 47.) (3 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: A man cannot leave the whole of his estate away from his wife. He must leave a minimum sum to her. This follows a case in which a widow was left nearly destitute. The paramount view before the war and during the war, and one can only guess that the Beveridge Committee had the same kind of idea, was that a woman should have a right, once she became a widow, to some kind of emolument from the...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Further to that point of order. Did you mention Amendment No. 125, standing in my name?

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The Government's intention to try to clear up some of the anachronisms in Schedule I only makes confusion worse confounded. I have been puzzling my brains trying to discover what yardstick, if there was one, originally actuated the Government in fixing the list of goods which would be exempted and, therefore, by implication, those not to be exempted. I have thought up three different...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: My hon. Friend the Member for Truro (Mr. G. Wilson) mentions china clay, but that does not figure in every industry. In supporting this range of Amendments, I ask the Government on Report, or in any way possible, if necessary by Treasury action, to do two things: first, to try to arrive at some kind of guiding principle. I know that when the Minister winds up I shall be told that there is a...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The yardstick.

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I appreciate the hon. Gentleman's giving way and also that he is doing his best to find his way through the labyrinth of the Customs list which, in passing, I would suggest might well be brought up-to-date because then we should not find these complications. I do not want to swop chemical formulae across the Floor, but does the hon. Gentleman think that the extraction of iodine, which is not...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I want to refer to an industry that has been rather longer established than some of those that we have been hearing about but which is very modern in its working. Amendment No. 125 seeks to add to the Schedule, and thereby exempt from the surcharge Plait, braid and straw hoods and braids and hoods made of man-made fibres. I should here explain, in fairness, that the hon. Member for Luton (Mr....

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am trying hard to see a way through all this and to find a path. What would be the position if the Chancellor thinks that the nearest he can get to a garden path is to talk about basic raw materials irrespective of what definition is used? If there was a raw material which was available in reasonable quantities in this country—I know that this is hypothetical, but I am trying to arrive...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Without wishing to delay the Committee, I must reiterate what my right hon. Friend the Member for Taunton (Mr. du Cann) said when speaking to the last Amendment, for this action on the part of the Government is quite extraordinary. We are being asked to include in the Schedule pig iron, cast iron and spiegeleisen, though I doubt whether cast iron can be regarded as something requiring a minor...
